COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Galactic Imperial Red boldly goes where no Red has gone before. We gave it all the Centennial and Cascade hops weve got to bring the floral and citrus flavor and aroma to Warp 5. With a rich caramel malt structure strong enough to withstand any blackhole and a warming finish that can stave off the cold of space, one sip and youll be calling it Number One.

Aroma has nice fruity tones and resin. Also fruit candy. Flavour has fruit candy, tropical fruits, resin and some minerals. A bit too dry but good stuff anyway.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2016
Rating #1748- 2015.06.13 - Bottle from @AFICMyles - Pours a copper amber, and exudes hoppiness right from the get go, powerful citrusy, grainy, fruity hops on the nose. Medium heavy carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. ABV disguised by hop character. Extremely balanced, pleasant sweetness, smooth bitterness, crisp clean finish. Beauty!.

Tap at Imazato. Nice citrus nose, cherry, some caramel. Brown-orange-red with lace. Rich malt flavor, caramel, oranges, peaches, some toffee. Nice balance. Good, but doesnt carry its weight well. Tastes more like 7.5%.

A nice imperial red overall. Pour a nice red with a white head. Smells of strawberry, oats and a hoppiness. Taste is piney and creamy, with lots of strawberry. Had on tap at the brewery.

ryanhunter_4 (243) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2015
650 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy brownish color, like iced tea. Smells like citrus hops. Taste is bitter throughout. Not what I expect of a red ale but drinkable. More like an ipa.
